    Bookmarker's Notes

    My all-time favorite post-Hogwarts fic. The only fic I consider to adhere to Snape's characterization from the books. This seems like a natural progression, VERY natural, so much so that their characterizations remain true to JKR throughout. This is the Snape we all know and adore anyway, not the Snape we all adore because he CHANGED, as in almost every other fic. It's a long, sometimes tough read, but the triggery bits are handled so they touch your heart but don't disturb it. I never feel like a raw nerve when I read this one, as I do with others. Some other things I adore: The Weasleys, natural/smooth progression, Hogwarts setting, powerful!Harry, sex magic, slow burn. <3

    Bookmarker's Notes

    My all-time favorite post-SV Clex. I didn't read it for years, avoiding the triggers. Not one other fic has ever been able to handle this particular trigger with respect and raw honesty. There's a surprising amount of lying to be done after a relationship like that is brought to light and this fic just refuses to lie about it. Lex's thoughts and feelings are eerily true to life and definitely things I wish I could (even once, with no threat of disgust, shock, horror) say out loud. I have to white-knuckle my way through the first half of it, but it's worth it - it's cathartic every single time. Apart from revisiting demons and indulging in how accepting Clark is/how honest Lex lets himself be (gorgeously in character, btw), there's the fact that every single thread of uncertainty about Lex and every single surety about Clark is held up for inspection and somehow explained, reconciled, accepted. They're the boys we know already and the men we hope they'll become, the couple they were supposed to become. The reasons they were driven apart are so brilliantly thought out that I found myself thinking back to SV dialog and nodding now that it makes sense. There were too many questions unanswered and I swear, this fic seeps into and fills up every single fracture line. Neither of their faults and both of their faults - it's the only way it could ever have made sense. If their story has to end for me, if I have to pick a place to stop knowing them and never know more of them, this is where I choose it to end. Definitely head!canon now, so much so that I forget other people don't already know that all of this happened. Note to self: Don't start this one if you can't finish it - devote a single day to read and process, preferably alone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This fic series tears me apart and puts me back together over and over and over. I read it once a year and am wrecked and useless for the 48 hours I spend reading it and doing *nothing* else apart from sleeping (note to future self: book a hotel room instead of trying to coexist with anyone while reading this). It's the most powerful, exquisite Snarry I've ever read. It consumes me and shatters me. It sticks with me for weeks at a time. It's full of all of my horrible triggers, the ones I never read, but it pushes me through them - past them (which is why I can't read it in pieces or I find myself entrenched in despair). It's not just h/c for THEM - it's hurt/comfort on a personal, deep level that I *never* bring to the surface. The toughest part is letting it all happen (reading every word), accepting as Harry accepts, and finding peace by the end.
